Felix Snow has been hard at work. Launching EFFESS Records with partner David Singer-Vine, the producer/songwriting duo have been busy creating electro-pop hits such as Kiiara‘s ‘Gold‘ and the mysterious banger from Kylie Jenner‘s ‘Glosses‘ lip kit commercial. Now, has Felix has dropped a new single from his imprint’s forthcoming compilation project Nukes In The Kitchen entitled ‘Lies‘ featuring SZA, an old friend of Felix Snow, which takes her in a whole new direction.
The high BPM allows SZA to display a side of her we’ve never heard — while there are moments that showcase her usual misty falsetto runs, she spends most of the track channeling her inner club diva to belt out soulful hooks that stand up to the energetic arrangement. Talking on the track, Snow states, “This song is just something where the style was something I wanted to hear her sing on. Her stuff is usually more chill and laid back and I wanted her to go in on something uptempo, because her voice sounds dope on it.”
This seems to be a great lane for SZA and the song is a solid impression for Snow and EFFESS leading into their compilation, planned to drop next month.
